Historic Homes Moved in Sarasota
SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) – The effort to preserve the history of one of the Suncoast’s oldest communities now includes moving some historic homes.
The Risdon Group is taking major steps to make sure Rosemary District historic past lives on by relocating three cottages built in the late 1800’s.
The homes were located near Central Avenue and 5th Street in downtown Sarasota. They were placed on trucks and moved to the Bayou Oaks Community near Ringling College.
The cottages will be renovated to meet current codes and turned into residential homes.
“The people that lived there were important to us, the integrity of what we’re doing in the Rosemary District and the building of the community is important. That’s why we want to save every bit of it for another day,” said Steven Bradley from Risdon.
